Colin Mills, compiler of the Hortus Camdenensis, died in late November 2012 after a short illness. As he always considered the Hortus his legacy, it is his family's intention to keep the site running in perpetuity. It will not, however, be updated in the near future.


A family of 8 genera and about 35 species of mostly woody twining climbers from East Asia and South America.  [RHSD].  Represented in the Hortus by a single species.
